Leave Taking by Winsome Pinnock, Bush Theatre
Afridiziak Theatre News has teamed up with Bush Theatre and has a pair of tickets to see Winsome Pinnock’s LEAVE TAKING.
Two generations. Three incredible women. Leave Taking is the epic story of what we leave behind in order to find home.
“What doctor know about our illness? Just give you pills to sick you stomach and a doctor certificate. What they know about a black woman soul?”
In Deptford, Del and Viv are soul-sick. Del doesn’t want to be at home – staying out late, 3pm-the-next-day late, is more her thing. Viv scours her school books trying to find a trace of herself between their lines.
When Enid takes her daughters to the local ‘obeah’ woman for some traditional Caribbean soul healing, secrets are spilled. There’s no turning back for Del, Viv and Enid as they negotiate the frictions between their countries and cultures.
